The LG HRM-FR74 Earphone offers real-time heart monitoring, the ability to track metabolic rate and oxygen consumption while listening to music. Earphones plug into the FR74’s data processing medallion which connects via Bluetooth to a smartphone to transmit music and fitness data, and is fully compatible with LG’s Lifeband Touch activity tracker. The FR74’s lightweight medallion measures a wide range of data including steps, calories, and distance. Heart rate and other biometric data is collected through the FR74’s sophisticated earbuds. The data processing medallion conveniently clips to a waist or armband for comfort, ease of use, and operation. Integrated aptX audio technology helps to provide crisp, hi-fidelity sound from the source device to the earphones.
